Witnesses are being sought to a two-car crash on the Falmer Road which left a man with serious internal injuries.

The incident happened at around 8:20am yesterday morning (Tuesday, December 29) on the B2123, north of Woodingdean, between two cars travelling in opposite directions.

The driver of a green Ford Fiesta, a 50-year-old man from Brighton, was taken by ambulance to the Royal Sussex County Hospital, where he underwent surgery. His condition is now stable.

The other vehicle involved, a black Toyota Rav 4, was driven by a 46-year-old man from Eastbourne, who sustained minor injuries.

The road was closed between Brighton and Hove Albion’s Amex football stadium and Bexhill Road, Woodingdean, for two hours while the incident was dealt with.

Anyone who saw the crash or either of the vehicles involved being driven shortly beforehand is asked to email or phone 101, quoting serial 173 of 29/12.
